OROVILLE, Calif. - A ban on selling cannabis in the city of Oroville will be a discussion Tuesday night in the city council meeting as they consider placing a marijuana-related business tax on the ballot.

There have been two public meetings with a hired consultant to help the city decide whether to pursue allowing the pot to be sold within city limits.

The council is considering a business tax of up to 10 percent.

A special election could cost up to $10,000, but anticipated revenue could come in at $300,000 to $600,000 a year.

The council meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.
